In the Population Health World, Put Cutting-Edge Care Coordination in Your Toolkit

Date: July 7, 2021

Time: 2:00 PM-3:00 PM EDT

Description:

This webinar will address the role and value of care coordination in a population health world (including a brief history/definition of population health), where PALTC practitioners follow their patients throughout the care continuum. It will walk participants through the creation and coordination of a care coordination team, including the skills, knowledge, and experience necessary for the team to be effective; what communication/information/data each team member will need; how to share roles/expectations and track outcomes/progress; how to document, track, and analyze data to identify successes as well as opportunities for improvement; and how to work with patients and families on advance care planning. A case study will let participants use what they’ve learned, as well as their own experiences, to take a patient through the continuum, and problem solve as part of a population health team.

Learning Objectives:

  • Develop an effective population health-focused care coordination team.
  • Use care coordination to collect data (such as medications and treatment goals) from all the specialists the patient sees, consolidate, and establish a single unified care plan that follows the patient throughout the PALTC care continuum.
  • Identify, establish relationships, and communicate with social and other agencies in the community and the state to support patients' social, financial, and other supports and services.
  • Implement a care coordination team that functions effectively during a crisis such as a pandemic and is flexible enough to meet the special needs created for such a situation.
